Ah, this is something.
The Five Point Café now has two little corrals of tables out front, so that you can drink beer and eat greasy-delicious junk food in the sunshine and/or while being lightly drizzled with a relentless misty rain.
The image just arrived in an email from owner David Meinert, who adds: “Our full food and drink menu will be served from 9am to 10pm daily, along with a view of the historic Chief Seattle statue, the monorail, Space Needle and some of Seattle’s more interesting people.”
Outdoor seating was gained via a permit that, at the end of 2010, was appealed by Five Point neighbor Tilikum Place Cafe and some nearby condo dwellers. The move to end service at 10 was part of the compromise with the neighbors, according to an earlier email from Meinert.
